What’s important to know about Gen is that she is a woman of character, although she is a pleasant smile and a perfect body which would make her look like an angel or an easy woman, she is not at all. A woman who is only the way of her heart, when she has a thought she follows him without thinking of the consequences that can run from it.
More it is a woman who has never let down by a man, the proof well that marriée she always followed his way. But behind this hides also a woman full of love, who believes in everything and of character very feeling, when she lives a story of love, she puts herself completely there maybe for this reason, when everything flows, it suffers.
A few months later, the actress seems to have a smile at the lips after a huge and tumultuous battle with her ex-husband. All press people wonder is it because she received the awards of the best African actress, or THE BEST NEW-COMER in the USA, or it has been published in the magazine VANITY-FAIR. And well beyond all this, as they say love gives the pain and well that’s true.

The two actors are getting married and the marriage is expected, but once the actress with other projects. The actress who is known for its hard character, thinks well to return to the altar but no child now, but the actor wants a child with her in the immediate, which creates a problem.
The brother of the actress testifies even to the press: the two love each other very much, gen is ready to do a lot to make everything work, but everything also seems to go into her career that she is not ready to destroy everything now, a child needs a lot of attention for her.

Her career seems to be going from her front, she finds herself for the first time at the Ran Hollywood or she turns next to ROBERT DE NIRO, once again with WILL SMITH where she interprets the role of the bar singer in the film WILD WILD WEST.
The problems do not seem to stop any more and by mutual agreement the two decide to divorce in all friendship. We would have thought it well, since the actor has accepted to yield the family villa and to pay the alimony, but the The two of them love their son, none wants to give custody to the other, thus a war that will last 1 and 3 months between the two actors.
Finally the actress will get the guard. The couple in public and in private appear more in love than ever and continues to prove it.
It is enough that the one trip one finds the other one who am the other always not company of their son. The couple had thus adopted this method In order to keep their couple safe and always strong, to leave always together.
